Professors and Teachers: Feel free to take a copy of this PDF and make it available to your class (possibly through
your academic website). This way everyone in your class will have the same copy (with the same page numbers) despite
my continual updates. Please try to avoid posting it to the public internet (to avoid old copies confusing things) and take it
down when the class ends. You can post the same or a newer version for each succeeding class. Please remove old copies
after the class ends to prevent confusing the search engines. You can contact me with a specific version number and class
end date and I will put it on my website.
